A date such as August 4th is marked by karmic pressures and issues that are out of one's conscious world of decisions. This can be a tough position for a Leo to be born in, for the outer world makes a large impact on their core and they could have a hard time dealing with the path given that they feel they didn’t ask for. Still, this is an extremely powerful place in the calendar, where one's focus determines the course of action and each step made, and there is nothing that cannot be accomplished in the real world if one rests and takes responsibility for each segment of their life.

August 4th Horoscope

(Pluto) – SATURN – (Pluto) – MARS

The goal of Saturn is set before Mars in this planetary row, and we can see great plans in minds of those born on August 4th. This date carries a strong stamp of destiny and circumstances that are out of one's control, but it is overcome with hard work and dedication to the distances that feel right and through learning how their situation can be used instead of dismissed however hard or burdening it might get. Their focus needs to reside in the material world and they are happiest when their bodies are happy and well-nurtured. Structure and routine make them calm and productive, focused on what truly matters in life.

The touch of the Moon and the Sun in the second planetary row speaks of their parent's relationship and the balance that needs to be found between different loyalties that are often in some way opposed or in conflict. Depending on the imprint from their home and upbringing, they are sometimes built to understand the ways of the real world, or confused in their own body, circumstances, instincts and sexuality.

Love and Emotions

Although the emotional world of a person born on August 4th might seem a bit distant at first glance and in their early years, we will find them to be extremely passionate and in need to intimately connect with one, specific person that understands them. They need some stability and seriousness to their relationships but at the same time, they need to be careful not to stumble into repression of their instinctive needs and what they feel is right in the first place.

Their partners are typically different from their character, for they are able to understand and appreciate differences of people in their life. However, this may lead into separations that are hard to anticipate and control, as if their unconscious need to stay a bit distant throughout all phases of intimacy keeps them apart from their true emotional potential. As they learn where their place and their true qualities lie, they could end up with partners that are much older or much younger, in a way forbidden or living behind walls of family issues and patterns that cannot seem to be overcome. Belief takes them into the arms of the right partner, for once they get a project worth fighting for, they become the true loyal Leo lover they were born to be.


The most important striving in lives of people born on the 4th of August is to shape their beliefs in ways that allow them progress and positive outcomes. Efforts they put in could return small and in ways that don’t fulfill their needs until they discover that this isn’t injustice but a signal that they need to change their path, following something truer that resonates with their Soul. They are to expand, grow, get educated and travel, ready to change perspectives and build a clear vision that will provide them with solid and heart-based plans.

It is important to keep your choices on a positive, colorful note, so they can remember how valued and supported they are every step of the way. Deep gifts with a dark side might inspire them, but it is always best to shoot for their joyful Sun and make them happy instead of digging through any wounds they have a hard time healing.
